New to me Defender - need suggestion on shop manual

I am new to the forum and just purchased a new to me '95 SW with about 37k miles. I have watched the forum for several months while searching for a D90 and have found the members and the knowledge base a tremendous help. I am looking to pick up a good shop manual and have seen both a printed versions and CD's but didn't know if one was better than the other or if they even contained the same info. I have seen print versions run approx $120 and the CD's only $25. Any comments/suggestions?

thanks in adavance!

I used to have the paper versions of both the parts manual and maintenece manual and recently got rid of both in favor of this one http://www.roversnorth.com/store/p-1...handbooks.aspx on CD as the CD had all the same info and then some and is much easier to manage and search.

Get the CD. When you need you can print out the relevant pages and not have to worry about the grease, oil, or beer that you coated them with while working on your truck.

That download is awesome. If anyone can't figure it out, you download it, then burn it to a cd. Only then can you look at all the manuals. It is the RAVE disc, and you can't beat free. Nice job Aric.

Please note that the RAVE manual (even the last one) only contains the 1997 NAS D90 workshop manual.
